Well I hope you post it here too.

Sure, seems like I'm already posting quite a bit here. ;)

The large, beautiful, in a menacing way, flower in the exhibit at the Zurich Zoo.

Ok, that's the genus Tacca:

Interesting trip. People I know from that part of the world can have a very nice sense of humor. plus with all those plants it must have been great.

I got that from the Vectrapoint website. In one of the aquascaping discussions they discussed "したくさ", the plants used in bonsai pots as groundcover. I haven't yet found it mentioned in any dictionary.

Edit:

However, if you google "shitakusa" you can find out that it is an accent, companion, or accessory plant to a bonsai, i.e. it is the supporting cast, not the star of the show. :wink:

That IS an aquascape, it's titled THE VACANT LOT.

I put names under the pictures in my travelog, I can't insert names on Claus' pictures.

Cool. I ignored the photos before as I have dial-up:( I'll have to suffer it out now though.
